Biography of Marilyn Lott
I've loved poetry my entire life beginning with poems my parents read to my brother and me from the Jr. Classics.
My husband and I travel all over this beautiful country and I enjoy writing poems about my travels. We have twenty acres in Montana with such beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I enjoy taking pictures with my digital camera.
I have written hundreds of poems for John McCornack's web pages. John sends me a page with the wonderful pictures he takes and I write a poem that will snuggle into the page. What a challenge that is for me!
My poems have been published in True Love and True Romance magazines as well as several anthologies. Recently my poem Arches National Park (posted here on Poem Hunter) was published in a text book for children ages 15-16. The company is Pearson Learning and based in Singapore.
I love to write about the simple life and how faith and hope is always there and that tomorrow is a fresh new beginning.

Marilyn Lott Poems
A Child’s Mind
The world is wide with wonder For everything is new A child’s mind is like a sponge Or like a flower sipping morning dew
3 White Ducks
Three ducks pecked around In a garden one warm day They wore beautiful coats Of white feathers to display
A Chat With The Lord
Sometimes I kind of feel sad and bored So I decide to have a little chat with the Lord I tell Him just what has been bothering me I know He understands and He will see
A Common Man
He works so hard every day Doing pretty much what he’s told The days slowly turn into years As his life carefully unfolds
A Cat Named Frank
He is a beautiful kitty cat Frank is his name And around the barnyard He has risen to fame
The most important thing to me When spring is on the rise Are all the lovely colors Of flowers before my eyes.
A Boy In Hope
There is a place called Hope, Arkansas Where a little boy grew up No one ever dreamed that one day His name would be on a special cup
She gets out there and hustles She does her very best It’s all about the teamwork And winning is her quest
A Bologna Sandwich?
I love a hamburger that is cooked just right Sliced tomato, onion and a pickle too A sandwich of chicken or turkey is nice So many choices that we can pursue
A Cowboy Song
It looked just like a cowboy song Cows meandering along the fence Sun dropped down and sent colors Across the sky with a bit of suspense
A Winter Pause
It was the first day of winter With hat and coat snug and tight Outside my booted feet crunched For it had snowed all night.
Do you ever watch the sunset And just sit and think about things Just you and the sky and darkness Giving your thoughts some wings
A Fractured Soul
Did you ever get so weary That you think you can’t go on? You reach inside yourself To find a part that may be strong?
A Child's Snowy World
Oh what fun when it snows It's a little boy's delight To tromp around in snow knee deep His world so crystal and white
A Joyful Country Life
I just love the Yucca plant
With their pale yellow blooms
But they are a little spiky
And need some extra room
They aren't just looking pretty
Native Americans knew just how
To weave the leaves into baskets
And make soap from the roots somehow
